2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey (United States), 64.6% abv, $80.00

95
Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

A dizzyingly heady nose of dense oak, pungent rye, and fresh violet leaps from the glass. This is a lot of whiskey, but instead of showing alcohol there's a mouthful charred-barrel sweetness and purity that cut whiskeys can't supply.
